Champions League: Very big scare with the plane that transports the Manchester City players

Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City got the job done in their first leg of the Champions League round of 16. Against Sporting de Portugal in Lisbon, the Skyblues easily disposed of the defending Portuguese champions (5-0), notably with a very good Bernardo Silva back in his hometown.

However, according to The Sun, the problems started later in the evening for the Cityzens who were unable to land at Manchester airport and got quite a scare. Indeed, due to a very strong wind, the pilot was forced to avoid the city to finally land in Liverpool, some fifty kilometers further west.

“We can confirm that the plane carrying the first team from Lisbon landed safely in Liverpool, after strong winds diverted it from Manchester.” This message written yesterday on the Manchester City Twitter account summarizes the great scare experienced by the Citizens, the day after their great victory over Sporting de Portugal (0-5), in the Champions League round of 16 League.

The Daily Mail explains that the Citizens plane, in strong gusts of wind, circled Manchester three times before being diverted to Liverpool John Lennon Airport. Storm Dudley, currently battering the north of the UK, is also affecting road and rail traffic.

Fortunately, more fear than harm for Pep Guardiola’s men, focused on welcoming Tottenham on Saturday (6:30 p.m.).
